The team is working on securing high conductivity contacts between the 4 plates carrying the electrodes...1.5 plates more to go before the electrodes can be mounted onto the Focus Fusion device.

We began the final stage of assembly of our new beryllium electrodes, transferring the beryllium anode into our nitrogen-filled glove box to protect us from any contact with beryllium dust and to protect the anode from water vapor and oxygen in the air.

Out with the old, in with the new! We installed two new switches on the Focus Fusion device with new ceramic plates protecting thin Mylar sheets and new spark plugs. If these two work well, we will replace the other six switches right away and get fewer breakdowns, more firing.

Syed installed the new Axial Field Coil (AFC)! The wire coil controls the spin on the plasmoid in our Focus Fusion device. It’s now protected by high-temperature materials: quartz glass coil, aluminum oxide ceramic connections (white) and titanium-nitride coated wire supports.

The numbers on each frame show the time elapsed since the start of the pulse. The region shown of the anode, close to the end of the insulator is a cm wide. The filaments (bright stripes) first form and become more distinct, then at the end begin to merge together, becoming destroyed. The bright regions near the lower end of the sheath are heavily contaminated with tungsten vaporized from the anode.

That's 8:00 PM EDT in case it's too small. We'll send out a toot with the exact URL 15 minutes before the AMA starts!

The Finnish Nuclear Society ATS featured us in their magazine ATS Ydintekniikka. They sent us a copy. It's a shame no one on the team understands Finnish :(

"Let There Be Light", a documentary that explores fusion research by focusing on three projects (including ours) will be broadcast on CBC tonight at 10:00PM!

If you know someone who's interested in watching, please send along the information!

Benefits of Focus Fusion

-Cheap, Hydrogen-Boron (pB11) fuel
-pB11- the highest energy density fuel
-Safe, clean
-Direct conversion to electricity
-Small size - fits in a garage
-Decentralized, independent generators

Our little sun in the lab, once functional, will put a stop to air, soil and land pollution by fossil fuels and it will lift the standard of living for everyone in the world to the point where resource wars will become obsolete.

The European patent was just granted! This is in addition to the US, Canadian, Chinese and Australian patents that have been granted!

Even though ITER's approach to is the world's best funded it is by no means the most advanced. Tim Lash explains why in this short article for the Focus Fusion Society.

Last night Jose chatted with Woodward who was one of the first reporters to write about Nixon's Watergate decades ago. Woodward is now an associate editor for the Washington Post. He was impressed with our research. We hope his editors will be too...

In case you missed it, this is an animation created with pictures from different shots of plasma in action. For an explanation of what can be gleaned from them, please read our report.

Thanks to 233 far-sighted investors we have now raised $503,000, over half way to the one million dollars we need to quicken our research for safe, clean, cheap and unlimited energy! This half-way mark was achieved Jan 12, just two months and 3 days into our Wefunder campaign.

This is also well over our minimum goal of $400,000, achieved Dec. 22. So this means we will certainly be getting at least the minimum money our project needs to move on to our critical...

LPPFusion Chief Scientist Eric Lerner compares and ranks the results of all the world’s leading fusion efforts, using three objective yardsticks. Comparing the ratio of fusion energy out to total energy into the device, LPPFusion’s, $5-million-dollar Focus Fusion-1 (FF-1) device comes in a close second to the largest functioning tokamak device, the Joint European Torus (JET), which has cost nearly a thousand times more.

Focus Fusion uses the dense plasma focus device to guide a series of instabilities, each one increasing density and temperature, to produce fusion energy. The core of the device consists of two cylindrical metal electrodes nested inside each other. A pulse of electricity from a capacitor bank is discharged across the electrodes...
